These cinnamon cream cheese cookies remind me of snickerdoodles. However, they have the texture of meltaways. Here Italian Cream Cake cookies feature a shortbread foundation of melt-in-your bouche rolling in toasted pecan and cocoon and icing of cream cheese.


  • 0.63 cup unsalted butter (softened to room temperature)
  • 5 ounces cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
  • 1.88 cup powdered sugar
  • 1.25 egg
  • 0.63 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1.25 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 2.19 cup all-purpose flour
  • 0.31 cup granulated sugar
  • 1.25 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth.
  2. Slowly add the powdered sugar and beat until combined.
  3. Add the egg, baking powder, vanilla, and salt. Mix to combine.
  4. Add the flour little by little until fully incorporated. Place the dough in the fridge for one hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  6. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together the 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 1/4 cup of sugar. Set aside.
  8. Scoop about 2 teaspoons worth of dough and roll into balls. Coat in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on the prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart from each other.
  9. Bake for 8-9 minutes, until just set, making sure to not overbake.
  10. Remove from the oven and let cool the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.
  11. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool completely before serving.
